Character Role Analysis

The Player

The Player floats in and out of the play, and whenever he comes on stage he acts like he is running the show. Though Guil disagrees with him on some important points, the two are actually very much alike. The Player seems to be able to offer Guil the same common-sense advice that Ros does, but in more sophisticated language that will make it more appealing to Guil. Mainly, he tells Guil to stop questioning everything and to learn to just relax and respond to what is going on around him.
